In this world of instant gratification weight-loss is assumed to just HAPPEN. Eat better than you have in years,workout at the gym either at all or harder than you ever have before, drink enough water to sink the Titanic or at least wear a path to the bathroom (making people at work wonder) and the pounds should just melt away. Right?
I wish that were true for me. I started with Weight watchers in March and lost 20 pounds fairly easily (3 months) but since then, the pounds have been sticking with me. I have only lost 8 lbs in the last 3 months. I rarely eat any junk food and stay within my 1200 - 1500 calorie plan I workout everyday and most time twice a day but still the pounds stay.
I have almost turned to quick fix diet ideas advertised on TV but I am to old and wise to fall for that stuff. I have gone down from being between a 16 to an 18 pants size to between a 12 and 14 which is wonderful but still..........
What will it take to break through this plateau????
If it lasts much longer I will go see my doctor (it's time for a yearly physical anyway) but in the mean time REPEAT AFTER ME,,,, SLOW AND STEADY WINS THE RACE!
